History of the Trinidad Tripoli Steel Band
My father, Hugh Borde, introduced the pan to audiences around the world and toured with Liberace for two and a half years. Liberace introduced the Trinidad Tripoli Steelband to the best venues and largest audiences, including the Ed Sullivan TV show.
For as long as I can remember there was always music around, the family or the neighborhood.
So naturally all my brothers and sisters grew up playing and eventually we became a family band. Under my dad’s leadership. We toured the US from 1979 to this date. We never stopped.
